An Israeli government Twitter account linked to an unflattering story about President Barack Obama in a tweet Tuesday.

The relationship between Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has deteriorated severely in recent weeks amid discord over how to handle Iran.

The Twitter page for the Israeli government’s press office reads, "Israeli official: Obama doesn’t give us same sense Clinton did that he’ll be there if things go bad - Times of #Israel."

Editor's Note: Will Obama Be Defeated? Vote Here!

The Times of Israel article quotes an anonymous government official criticizing Obama's Mideast policies, while praising former President Bill Clinton.

“Clinton made us feel like he had our back," the official told the newspaper. "When we made concessions that were greater than anything an Israeli government had ever offered, we felt he’d be there if things went bad. Would he have been there? I don’t know. But it felt that way, and it put us in a different frame of mind. President Obama doesn’t give us the same sense that he’d be there.”

To be sure, the government’s Twitter page does note that the "tweet/RT does not constitute endorsement of view." But the message surely was transmitted.
